Being an effective teacher isn't just about what you do in the classroom; it's about working collaboratively to raise standards within the school and further afield. The author draws on evidence obtained from interviews with effective teachers in primary and secondary schools in England and Wales to explore what leading the learning means in terms of pedagogy in the classroom. Although rooted in a theoretical framework based on teacher leadership, this is a practical perspective on what a responsibility to lead the learning means in the reality of the classroom. The book contains action points and reflective questions, plus end of chapter summaries so you can quickly check your understanding. This book is for anyone who has been awarded a Teaching and Learning Responsibility (TLR) or anyone seeking to gain one of these awards.

Events on Wall Street and Main Street reveal that some business leaders make dramatically unethical selfserving decisions that ignore the public interest. How can business schools educate future business leaders to make ethical decisions? Unfortunately, most business schools fail in teaching ethical decisionmaking. They erroneously assume that such decisionmaking is primarily conscious and reasonbased, reflecting the western cultural orientation toward science and logic. In this book, Thomas Culham cites neurological findings showing that unconscious processes and emotions play a much more significant role than reason in making ethical decisions. Culham urges business schools to teach a modified form of emotional intelligence, linked with researchsupported contemplative practices from the great meditative traditions. This book details the author's ethics curriculum and explains its successful application at the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia. This fascinating, interdisciplinary, and highly practical curriculum integrates philosophy (virtue ethics), Daoist thinking, psychology, and neuroscience. This curriculum intends to transform the way business schools teach decision making. Such an effort might just transform the way we do business.

New primary leaders face significant challenges worldwide and this book brings together the range of those experiences and challenges for the first time. It includes interviews with primary school leaders in the early years of leadership in 12 different countries.

The leaders discuss how they prepared for principalship, their experiences after taking up the post, the extent to which the job meets with their expectations and their hopes and fears for the future. The final chapter provides a comparative overview, exploring new principals' perceptions of key influences on schools and their communities, their reactions to the multiple, heightened and often-conflicting expectations, pressures and challenges they encounter and the implications for principal preparation internationally. The voices of principals from around the world provide a vivid and authentic picture of new school leaders in different contexts at the beginning of the 21st century.

In framing this book, Bill Rogers discusses `what changes' and `what stays the same' in teacher leadership and behaviour. Original chapters from well-known writers and practitioners set out current approaches in behaviour leadership, in terms of practical concerns about behaviour management and discipline. The emphasis on teacher leadership is intentional, as the authors believe that the kind of teacher leadership in a school significantly affects the effectiveness and humanity of discipline and management. All the contributors have a teaching background and all are directly involved with schools, in research and consultancy. Bill Rogers works in classrooms with teachers, as a coach/mentor. Each chapter demonstrates a commitment to support classroom teachers with practical action research in areas such as: - Teacher leadership - Effective teaching - Colleague support - Discipline and behaviour management - Working with students who show emotional-behavioural disorders. This book will be useful to teachers and other education professionals interested in behaviour management, discipline and colleague support issues.
